Starter For 10
Starter For 10 is a delightful romantic comedy starring the ever-capable James McAvoy as Brian. Brian is working class all the way, but he has an insatiable thirst for knowledge and dreams of being on University Challenge. Of course being a comedy and a bit of a coming to age saga, not everything is smooth sailing for Brian as he falls in love with two girls, alienates his old friends without really managing to make new ones.
Featuring an exceptional array of 80’s hits and a cast of lovable if clichéd characters, Starter For 10 is the perfect movie for a relaxing night in, that will bring back memories of what live used to be like.
Food for thought:
Choices. Life is made up of choices, some little, and others big. It’s what we do with these choices that defines who we are. But choices also affect those around us. Brian is faced with numerous choices in Starter For 10, and occasionally he makes the wrong choice, his biggest lesion however is making the choice to face up to his mistakes.
